      Portos bakery has had them for several weeks now. I have seen them in both shops. Give 'em a call.

        I've ordered it from Porto's last couple of years. Comes with beads and the baby on the side.

          We had one from Thees today at the office...it was only fair...a little too sweet and a bit dry...and completely unlike that I am used to from Louisiana. The marzipan was good but the actual pastry was not rich enough...It was more like a coffeecake with purple, green and gold sprinkles on it. Fortunately, I have a couple on their way tomorrow from Lafayette!
